SFO trespasser lands plea deal for latest two cases
April 04, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Marilyn Hartman

The woman arrested twice in one week for violating a court-ordered ban from visiting San Francisco International Airport because she previously snuck through security check points settled her two latest cases Thursday and was released from custody.

Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, was on probation for trying to sneak onto a Hawaii-bound airplane in February when airport police arrested her first on March 18 and then March 26. Both times Hartman freely admitted knowing she was not allowed at the airport without a boarding pass in her own name. When an officer who found her in the baggage claim area questioned if she had a ticket this last time, Hartman reportedly said, “No. I get paid next Tuesday.”

On Thursday, prosecutors dismissed charges of trespassing and violating a court order in the March 18 case in return for Hartman pleading no contest to the exact same counts in the March 26 incident. The matter was referred to probation for a pre-sentencing report and she was released on her supervised own recognizance with the order to stay away from SFO, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.

Other terms of her negotiated plea deal were not immediately available.

Hartman’s cycle of arrest and release stemming from the airport began in February when she was arrested following three attempts within five days to board Hawaii-bound flights with a ticket. The first time she got on board but was discovered when the actual ticket holder arrived at the seat. The next two times, including once when she used a discarded boarding pass, she was stopped at the security gate. After her arrest following the third attempt to sneak through security, Hartman reportedly told authorities she has cancer and wanted to go somewhere warm.

Hartman pleaded no contest on Feb. 27 to two misdemeanor counts of commercial burglary and received credit for time served along with the order to stay away unless she had a ticket in her own name. On March 18, she was arrested at the food court past the security checkpoint with her probation paperwork in her purse and told the arresting officer she felt safer at the airport than her Third Street apartment in San Francisco. A judge scheduled an Aug. 4 jury trial and let her out of custody.

On March 26, she was arrested in the Terminal Three baggage claim and held on $7,500 bail until yesterday’s resolution.
